#IndyBandsTogether - You may have seen the hashtag on social media recently and so we wanted to find out more about this campaign. Damar Services is the company behind it and we brought them in the studio to learn more about what it means. Plus Big Lug Canteen is here they brought drinks and cake! Find out what is happening at Big Lug Canteen and we have more weird and wacky news from Paul Poteet this week on Edge of Indy.
Damar Services is great organization located on the southwest side of Indianapolis. If you haven't heard of them before they help people challenged by autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and related behavioral challenges to live more successful lives.
As a parent of a child with autism, intellectual or developmental disabilities, the fear of losing a child is too real. They are prone to running away or wandering off and in that instance, the sooner someone is found the better. So, as a part of their mission, Damar launched a campaign with the Indianapolis Colts called #IndyBandsTogether where they are raising funds with the help of local firefighters to buy wristbands or anklets with small transmitters to help find a missing person quickly.
